Granite is a very hard and dense natural stone. The name is driven from a Latin word "Granum", meaning 'a grain' and corresponds to its texture.
Granite is formed within the earth's crust, at a depth of 1.5 to 50 km from the surface. It is an igneous rock, formed by the process of intrusion. That is, granite is formed as a result of movement of very hot molten magma upwards through cracks in the crust's rocks. As the hot magma moves upwards, it melts the pre-existing rocks it contacts, before solidifying under pressure and drop of temperature. While solidifying, it crystallizes, forming coarse, hard, solid rock with comparatively low density.
The continental area of the earth's surface has a large amount of granite beds spread in the crust. This is specially noticeable in the mountain ranges where erosion has washed off all the soil, exposing large granite rocks forming the core of the mountains.
Since it is formed under enormous pressure and temperature, granite is tough and hard with a high compressive strength and heat resistance. The durability of granite is clearly deducible from the fact that it forms the core of a large number of mountains spread across the earth.
Granite is rich in silicon, specially quartz (comprising 20% mass of the rock), alkali feldspar and/or feldspathoids. These minerals vary the texture, color and density of the stone. Granite is found in various colors and textures, from covering huge color range from pink to grey, extending to darker shades, including black.
Granite has found innumerable uses in the construction industry. Granite pillars support a large number of buildings, including skyscrapers throughout the world. Being more durable, readily available and inexpensive than marble, granite is used extensively as an indoor as well as outdoor stone. It serves numerous purposes, including floors, kitchen slabs, counter-tops, cabinets, decorative tiles, furniture, and other household and industrial uses. Many monuments of current age are forged out of granite instead of marble because it offers acid-resistance and enormous durability, along with magnificent beauty. Using advanced modern technology, it is now possible to carve ornamental patterns into the stone, or sculpt it for decorative purposes.
The pyramids of ancient Egypt as well as a lot of ancient South Indian Hindu temples have made extensive use of granite. Memorials of granite with intricate carving were used as a status-symbol for the Victorian Britain. The New London Bridge has also used Hayton Granite for its entire construction.
Granite is an internal part of construction and it undergoes many refinement processes before its installation.
Granite is available in many colors SAPPHIRE BLUE, ABSLUTE BLACK, SILVER PEARL, IMPERIAL WHITE, AMBA WHITE, RAJASTHAN BLACK, MADURA GOLD and many more.
